Auburn dentist helps students smile

-A +A

At the end of May, Dr. Luminita Markham, a general dentist in Auburn, provided dental checkup screenings for students at Rock Creek Elementary School.

Markham and staff made the students smile by demonstrating proper brushing and flossing techniques with the help of a few big-teethed stuffed animals and a giant toothbrush. Following the demonstration, she conducted a thorough visual exam of each student, noting signs of obvious decay, orthodontic needs and sealant recommendations for those with permanent molars.

Each student received a report to share with parents, along with a toothbrush, floss and toothpaste. For information, call 530) 823-8771 or visit
